The platform focuses on student success by providing educators with high-quality course content created by STEM curriculum experts. Möbius can deliver coursework and monitor student performance with analytics. For students, Möbius provides an interactive digital learning environment that can be accessed anytime, anywhere, providing sophisticated automatic marking and immediate, focused student feedback.

“We are extremely proud of the ongoing adoption of Möbius, and how it has allowed online education to enhance and improve traditional education,” said Jim Cooper, Founder and CEO of DigitalEd. “We believe the PSG team understands and is committed to our founding vision. In our view, they are a perfect partner for DigitalEd, as we seek to continue to expand the Möbius platform to empower educators by both measuring and improving the learning experience.”
